ABSTRACT

This study was to investigate characteristics of curriculums of tourism management major at Korean universities. It also examined if the curriculums meet the needs of Korean tourism industry. Data were collected from the web sites of the 7 oldest tourism management departments in the seven regions of Korea. Results showed that there were many introductory courses of tourism management in the curriculums. However, there were lack of sequence and balance in many curriculums. Furthermore, practical subjects were not enough to meet the needs of tourism industry. Findings from study suggest the necessity of discussion and consensus of Korean tourism scholars to make a standard tourism management curriculum.
